The UPS Worldport in Louisville, Ky., is the center of the company's international shipping operations. It's the size of 90 football fields, sorts 350,000 packages an hour and contributes 20,000 jobs to the local economy. We took a peek inside their busiest shift: 11p.m. to 3a.m. a week before Christmas.

Forgot.. You work for two minorities if you are white and load trucks, because they are slowwwww so UPS bosses use you'Whitey's as they just pretend they working but they slack off etc, I'm no racist it's vice versa.. Worked with all people everywhere and didn't had that pretty much problem. But UPS heyyy you are majority so you are 'privledged' as they say, work for 3 people be used as a tool.

Where is the footage of people running around throwing, kicking, sliding, dragging, and punching packages across the hub? This looks to pristine it must have been staged and edited!

It's like one of the safety audits . Management trickle out the flow while the safety auditors are there, but once they leave..

I got fed up with UPS bullshit so I applied for a job there to see, what actually happens behind the close door. OMG! Well... folks... these people don't care about your packages. Most of my time, I have to move around fast but most of packages that I handle were Television, Monitors, Computers, Labtops, and anything that value. I have to move fast but also be careful I don't want to smash them but I got fired because I wasn't throwing the boxes like everyone else were doing. Motherfuka.... you want me to throw something like computers and monitors?!?! That's stupid..., no wonder when I bought a monitor from online and when UPS faggots brought it my house, it was all smashed. Now on, I only choose FedEx or Canada Post. At least, these guys do their job.

Was this World Port? As you get heavily penalized for throwing packages. The only 'packages' I've ever tossed were very small boxes and usually it was upwards to get them onto a higher part of the stack that I couldn't reach without jumping. But whenever things like TV's/Monitors come through I usually try to be careful setting them down. I wouldn't want a monitor I paid anywhere close to $700 for to come in broken.

Luke K ...Yeah I worked on conveyor belt (seperating soarting packages) and it's like you said, it's just all about UPS money all they care about not their worker or the customer and service. Sad but true. The worker is used as some muel donkey slave, CAN'T shut off the conveyor belt if you get jams on the belt much because they scream like hell right away at you , although you want to do good and un-jam it and get back to your position. There's tons of packages torn, missing items, etc... Once we had some organ in a cooler full of dry ice or something opened up, spilled opened... Nice huh?!

Cory Henson My thoughts exactly! It literally takes an act of God to get fired once you're in. Also they taught him to throw packages? I was taught a little something called "hand to surface" which means the package never leaves your hands until it's on a surface! Never throw packages accept small bags with a shirt or something in it.

As someone that works for ups, how in the world do you get fired while being in the teamsters union?
